In game attendance has been poor, but they still maintain a good following otherwise and get decent TV ratings.

There are very few cities that can manage solid attendance and viewership for all 4 sports. Philadelphia for example, does well in the NHL and MLB, and their football team averages around 10-14 per year which is good too, but their NBA team, until recently, has been piss poor.
wasnt talkin about Leafs sir and the bolded seems a bit high, but still very poor since Leafs STH are forced to buy Raptors tickets. and also very poor since you are in what the 4th largest market? isnt that what Torontonians like to beat their chest about..

NFL would be the same.. in like a Lion out like a lamb.. then all the excuses will start team sucks, stadiums bad or in bad area etc etc
